Iran says it will execute informant who led CIA to Soleimani. Iran’s judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili says Iranian named Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd worked as a spy for CIA, Mossad.

Iran says its citizen who provided information to the US and Israeli intelligence services on the whereabouts of the slain Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Qassem Soleimani will be executed soon.

Soleimani, leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force, was assassinated in a US drone attack in Iraq on January 3. Washington blamed Soleimani for masterminding attacks by Iran-aligned militias on US forces in the region.

“Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, one of the spies for CIA and Mossad, has been sentenced to death. He gave the whereabouts of martyr Soleimani to our enemies,” judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said in a televised news conference on Tuesday.

Esmaili did not say when Majd would be executed and also stopped short of directly linking the information allegedly offered by Majd to Soleimani’s death.

Officials have also not said whether Mousavi-Majd’s case is linked to Iran’s announcement last summer that it had captured 17 spies working for the CIA, some of whom it said were sentenced to death.
